Eagle Nebula in Two Wavelengths

We just had a great star formation talk from Professor Ralf Klessen from the Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics at the Center for Astronomy at Heidelberg University. During that talk he put up a great slide showing the famous Pillars of Creation from the Eagle Nebula (M16) in both infrared and the optical.

Inspired, and looking for something to do, I have come back to my office and made a nice fade-in-fade-out of these two wavelengths for YouTube. Original infrared file is from ESO, original optical file is from Hubble.
